Madrid newspaper AS is reporting that we are one of five teams pursuing Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

The Croatian international told Marca last week that he wants to leave the Bernabeu, and it is believed that us, Manchester United, Juventus, Inter Milan and Roma are all keen on signing the 24-year-old.

Some fans on Twitter were keen on us pursuing the player while others are sceptical about the source of the story:

Verdict:

Both Madrid publications AS and Marca are more accurate when it comes to stories relating to Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid so I wouldn’t rule out our interest in the Croatian.

However, it’s unlikely that we would be able to sign the midfielder. He has a €300m (£264m) release clause and Real are reluctant to sell so the deal would prove extremely costly to pull off.

Kovacic would be perfect for us to replace Dembele if the Belgian departs, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on a transfer happening.

  • AS, Marca, Don Balon are all a pack of liars, marginally worse than our own press. I for one wouldn’t believe anything these muppets print.

  • But we have a special relationship with Real, we sell them our top stars and we get no one in return. 🙂
